Return to Tombstone

I know it’s been a while since my last blog post, but we’ve just been chillin’ around the RV park and not doing much interesting.

This weekend is Tombstone’s Vigilante Days. Since it’s only about 22 miles from where we are we decided to go to Tombstone and see what was happening. It’s about the same as it was last week when we were there but more crowded with people and more entertainment on the streets.

We had a late lunch at Big Nose Kate’s Saloon. The food was good, the interior was really cool, and they had live entertainment.  This used to be the Grand Hotel and the night before the Gunfight at the OK Corral the Clantons and the McLaurys were guests here. Big Nose Kate is believed to have been the first prostitute in Tombstone and she was also Doc Holliday’s girlfriend.



On our way back home we took a little side trip to visit the old ghost town of Fairbank. This town was the nearest railroad depot to Tombstone and became an important transportation and supply hub eventually serving three rail lines. An earthquake and a few floods in the late 1800’s destroyed much of the town and knocked railroad tracks out of place leading to the demise of the town.

There is a Border Patrol Checkpoint Station between Tombstone and Benson. Today we saw the drug-sniffing dog at work sniffing all the cars as we drove by. We were not asked any questions, just waved on.


Now here’s a road sign I have never seen before….


  • Gasoline:  $31.50 @ $2.07/gallon
